*CLOSED* Giveaway: Dragon Age: Origins, Ultimate Edition!

Dragon Age Origins Ultimate Edition logo

Happy September Giveaway! I’ve spent the last month playing this game and have fallen so hard for Dragon Age I’m PUMPED that I bought a second one to giveaway here! If you’ve been reading me the last few weeks then you may have noticed I enjoy blogging about this fantasy based RPG. Heh. The story is amazing! It’s crafted into a life of its own, reaching far and wide across the map leaving no stone unturned. The graphics *are* dated as this game released five years or so ago but they’re rich and stunning in their own right. Lots of detail and care went into them!

You play as a single-player in a group of computer characters that you can switch to (back and forth in battle even) and control. You and your “group” level up and it’s up to you as to where you spend their points (attributes, specializations and new skills). Your group, or party, is more than just extra swings and shing-shings. Upping their approval of you by giving them gifts opens up new skills. This game has the feel of an MMO only it has a pause button. The sound track is amazeballs! Bioware did an outstanding job on this game and gave it a TON of replay value. Your choices matter and not only change what happens in game here and there but dictate the ending you play!

I’m giving away Dragon Age: Origins Ultimate Edition which comes with the base game as well as the expansion, Awakening, and the DLC packs. Here’s the list:

  1. Dragon Age: Origins

So how does this giveaway work?

  • You have to have Steam to play the game as I’ll be gifting the winner the game through Steam. There will be instructions in the email explaining how to download Steam in case you don’t have it already. Steam is a free download.
  • The winner will have to use a valid email address when commenting (not IN the comment itself, just in the input box you have to fill out TO comment so it’s kept private) so I can send the download link for the game. I won’t sell or give your email address to anyone, promise. If you’re signed in to WordPress when you comment make sure the email associated with your WordPress profile is a valid one that you can check.
  • You have to leave a comment on this post in order for me to enter you into a random draw to win the game.
  • Oh, and you need an internet connection to download the game.

– You don’t have to be my Steam friend in order for me to gift the game to you because Steam allows for people to send gifts to email addresses, not just through the client. If you want to add me as a Steam friend, that’s cool. Not required though.

– I will assign each person who comments a number and then enter the numbers in a Random Number Generator to determine the winner. Multiple comments from the same person won’t increase your chances of winning. In other words, if you comment 187 times you’re still only getting one entry number assigned to you.


This giveaway starts as soon as I publish this post (8AM CST on 09/01/14) and runs through (Midnight CST 09/05/14  ). I will then use the RNG linked above to draw a winner. I’ll email the winner on Saturday and if I haven’t heard from them by Sunday night I’ll draw for a new winner on Monday. Sound fair?

Comment below for a chance to win. May the Maker shine favor on you! (<—- of *course* I’d forget how that line goes, no?)

EDITING TO ADD: Giveaway is over and a winner has been drawn! Thanks for entering!
